Best Wet Weather Bibs
Flylow Baker Bibs

The Baker Bibs are an uncompromising outer layer that looks more at home on the farm than the slopes. Their robust construction makes them the best upgrade for skiers like me whose previous gear has been pieced back together with dental floss stitching. They’re also the go-to powder choice for a lot of steep and deep freeride skiers.

There’s no secret to success, just a lot of fabric and some solid ergonomics. Their 3L weave feels like a pair of heavy work pants rather than the crunchy material like most hardshell ski pants. The knees and the cuffs are further reinforced with Cordura fabric.

The fit is looser around the legs than much of the competition, and don’t restrict your gait at all. They also come in a few extra sizes. Tall skiers finally have a bib that won’t ride up like a pair of high-waters.

The only drawback of its robustness is a hit on breathability. Flylow compensates by adding nearly leg-length zippers on both the inside and outside of the pants. It’s not the most optimized option for the backcountry but isn’t a terrible option for aggressive resort skiers who occasionally head off-piste.
